Well, it's good to know.

For funds, this move is no problem at all. I just hope that it wouldn't detract from simply getting the belt around Lubbock. Since the area won't adopt a toll road authority, TXDOT should now be able to speed the project up.

Here's an update for you: A significant amount of land is being cleared between Avenue P and U.S. Highway 87 on FM 1585 to give right-of-way to Loop 88. Land between Slide Road and University had previously been set aside, so this segment can effectively commence with new construction of the feeders, and then the mainlanes with grade separations.
